소개

십 년 전 Apple은 최초의 iPhone을 출시했고 세상을 바꿨습니다. 오늘 우리는 Apple의 18번째 버전을 분해합니다—the iPhone X. 둥근 모서리와 edge-to-edge/전체 화면 디스플레이를 통해 우리는 Steve가 오래전에 상상했던 iPhone이라고 확신합니다—그러나 이제 그의 꿈은 실현되었는데 과연 그것이 첫 번째 iPhone만큼 영향력이 있을까요? 시간이 말해주겠지만 우리는 지금 귀하의 결정을 돕기 위해 최선을 다하겠습니다. 저희와 함께 Apple의 가장 매력적인 최신 기기를 열어서 빛나는 이유를 알아봅시다.

오스트레일리아에서 자사의 분해 작업을 호스팅 한 Circuitwise], X-ray 이미지를 제공한 Creative Electron 및 IC ID에 관한 TechInsights에 대단히 감사드립니다.

이제 오스트레일리아 상점을 개장했으며 우리가 시드니에 있다는 것은 유리합니다. 우리가 알게되는 내용은 Facebook, InstagramTwitter에 게시할 것입니다. 이메일을 선호한다면 newsletter/뉴스레터도 있습니다.

    Which iPhone X model number are you investigating?

    Dimitar - 답글

    I think we can safely assume it’s the global A1901 model. Both other models are country specific according to EveryMac.com: A1865 for China and A1902 for Japan.

    A1865 is for US Verizon and Sprint too

    Sam Sun -

    On-cell display or in-cell display?

    Albee Einstein - 답글

    1901 is not global. It’s the GSM only version with the inferior Intel chips. The Qualcomm 1865 is the global/unlocked version.

    • 이 pentalobe/펜타로브는 이상하게 완성되지 않은 것처럼 보입니다. 솔직히 하단 나사는 핀 같습니다.

    • 이 나사는 나삿니 섹션을 디스플레이에서 스틸 프레임으로 이동하고 나삿니가 없는 섹션을 확장하여 엄청나게 긴 핀으로 만듭니다.

    • 우리가 추측컨데 디스플레이에 약간의 유연성을 제공하는 동시에 마운팅 브래킷을 휴대폰 내부로 이동하여 강화된 Lightning 커넥터 공간을 만들었습니다.

    • 다행히도 휴대폰은 크게 바뀌지 않아서 iOpener, iSclack 및 iFixit Opening Picks/여는 픽 등 전형적인 세 가지 도구를 예전처럼 사용합니다.

    I’m sure the most outer row of via’s are extending the shielding around the sandwich. Even still thats a lot of lines being passed between the half’s! I can’t see anyone trying to open & fix this module.

    Dan - 답글

    You are missing the point. These are connecting the board physically, but there is no communication through those vias. You can see the other side of the board has all the connectors to flex. (On both boards). The third board act as a super stiffener to prevent overheating causing bending on the board. Great design!!!

    Ramiro Montes de Oca - 답글

    Sorry Ramiro the outer row are shielding (ground) the 2rd & 3rd rows are comm lines between the boards (interposer board).

    Dan -

    You’re mistaken, Ramiro. They created a third spacer PCB that lines the perimeter. And instead of connecting the two layers with a fussy flex cable, data travels along dozens of through-hole vias. Why do people spout about stuff they don’t know… it drives me mad!

    Richard - 답글

    You are Correct!

    Dan -

    Does the folded design take up more vertical space than the old logic board design, and if so, how did Apple account for this increased vertical space?

    Was there vertical space open to begin with or does something in the design allow for more vertical space (i.e. the OLED panel is thinner)?

    Thanks!

    Urname - 답글

    Yes, I think the OLED panel is considerably thinner. The X and 8 are pretty much the same thickness, so I think that that yes, it’s solely because of the OLED!

    Liam Powell -

    So Richard your assertion is that the silvered bumps all around the two boards are the vias? With a pitch of, what, 300µ?

    The MacRumors article yesterday referred to an interposer between the two main boards, but I don’t see any such. Was MacRumors wrong, or am I missing something?

    name99 - 답글

    The outer perimeter of “silver bumps” aka solder balls is most likely all connected to ground. The rest must be signals. There is not enough cabling to support the required amount of signals between the two boards.

    The interposer is still attached to the half in the top of the picture. The border of solder balls is higher than the rest of the PCB. This is required due to the night of the components on each PCB.

    Truly incredible design. Passes data without cabling, affixes the two boards to each other without hardware, and creates an EMI shield without extra metal

    Daniel Nadeau -

    Is that a piece of flat flex connected across two parts of the lower board? going right under the middle screw hole

    Andrew Cassidy - 답글

    It’s the ribbon from the camera’s which is poking up.

    Dan -

    Dan, I don't think so. Its completely sealed inside the sandwich

    Andrew Cassidy -

    Thats just a kapton insulator sheet inside the sandwich. I thought you were talking about the other image.

    Dan -

    I believe it time to find some more of my good old LCD bonding 9703 3M anisotropic tape. That might be the ticket for servicing that motherboard. Still have some tape in stock, so my shop will service that motherboard, when parts become available.

    How did apple manage to take out heat from their processor? I still couldn’t understand how is this working…

    Ayush Gupta - 답글

    Good question! Given the fact the A11 chip is in the middle and doesn’t have any heat management unlike other SoC’s!

    The chip is using the smallest Node tech available! TSMC using a 10 nmFinFET process. This must be how Apple is able to not worry about heat.

    Dan -

    You are all wrong :-) look at the RF board, there isn’t a signle trace routed from the armada of solder-pads, so I’d say they’re purely mechanical & GND /tekhead

    Albert Einstein - 답글

    You do understand the PCB is made up of layers.

    Their won’t necessary be any visible traces on the surface besides what space is there! It’s so packed the lines would need to be buried inside the layers. One of the functions of via’s is to bring signals up and down the layers, clearly Apple is leveraging this here through the interposer board.

    Dan -

    @kyle - Can you take the circuit boards and take an image of the sandwich from the side or laid out in order so people can see the layers when pulled apart. I think people are getting confused on how they fit together.

    Dan -

    @kyle - Found a good image set from Tech Insights! Here’s the side views http://www.techinsights.com/uploadedImag... and http://www.techinsights.com/uploadedImag...

    Dan - 답글

    There’s a lot of need for intercommunication between the RF and the main CPU. There’s no other interconnect between the two boards. The perimeter vias have to be a communication bus.

    The device is waterproof. Batteries really can’t be made waterproof as they have exposed contacts which when shorted would be dangerous depending on how conductive the liquid was (i.e. salt water).

    • Face ID 기능을 기억하나요? 이례적으로, 우리는 휴대폰을 분해하기 전에 실제로 테스트를 했습니다. 자사의 IR-지원 비디오 카메라가 도트 패턴을 잡기에 충분히 빠르지 않지만 조명은 괜찮게 잡았습니다.

    • 역사 시간: 옛날에, Microsoft는 Kinect라는 멋진 공간 센서를 만들었습니다. 이에 동력을 제공하는 적외선 도트 매트릭스 기술은 이스라엘 기술 회사 PrimeSense가 개발했습니다.

    • Apple은 2013년에 PrimeSense를 3억 6천만 달러에 인수했으며 그 이후로 수 억 달러를 더 투자했습니다.

    • 한편, 휘청거리던 Microsoft는 허둥지둥 Kinect 2의 새로운 센싱 시스템을 개발합니다. 이제 iPhone에는 깊이 센서가 장착되어서 아마 사람들은 드론에 부착하려고 할 것입니다.

    Jody, the flashes are invisible to the human eye. In the video you can hear the guy with the phone asking if the cameraman can see the flashes, because you need a special camera to view them. It’d be like staring into the end of a TV remote control and pushing buttons.

    Is the Lightning connector two-sided? Pins on both sides like we originally saw in the iPad Air 2 (IIRC) and larger iPad Pro?

    Scott - 답글

    I don’t think it really matters. Apple’s Lightning Connector is double sided, so EVEN IF they DO have contact points on both sides, they probably would have wired them together anyway.

    Xavier Jiang - 답글

    The Lightning connector IS double sided, however the pins are NOT NECESSARILY physically tied together in the connector; ergo it actually supports 16-pins, not 8. So it DOES matter. A double-sided port could hypothetically support Thunderbolt, or 2 USB3 channels. And we have seen, inexplicably, a double-sided port from Apple before in the iPad Pro. A fully 2-sided Lightning connector/port could be functionally as capable as USB Type-C, minus the legacy USB 2.0 lanes. (The Type-C connector ALWAYS maintains a legacy USB 2.0 pair; Apple would have no need for that legacy combination if Thunderbolt was their forward-looking target.)

There isn’t really a reason why replacing the True Depth sensors should be a “common replacement” like the home button was.

From a boardlevel repair perspective I sense this is mostly game over.

Separation of the two layers requires an amount of heat applied to the whole structure pretty much all soldering folks would consider unsafe including myself.

Lets all hope very strong that this design improves mechanical stability to a point where we wont have breaking solder joints any more and improved circuitry preventing most common damages. The level and style of catch up game with the repair industry apple plays here is disconcerting.

After settling with recent macs not to be considered buyable because of &&^&^$^ all components being soldered in and tethered added to ridiculous toylike features driving stupid prices now the iPhone is also beyond what I am willing to accept for such money.

Its depressing to see how fast apple from year to year is becoming more about profit and money and less about tech and users.

I wonder how long I have to wait until some other player comes up with a real alternative in terms of user experience.

I have to agree. I started out in 1980 with my bsee degree repairing Apple 1’s 2’s and 3’s with an oscilloscope, soldering iron and the latest copy of the ic circuit handbook. I have not been thrilled about Apples progression from everyman’s or women’s mac to unserviceable sometimes throw away stuff that needs cottage industries to support what they can, when before it was mainstream repair with dig this, a service door!.

Ross Elkins -

@Ross Elkins: The Apple 1, ][ and /// were designs based on 7400-series TTL logic. Do you have any idea how big, power-hungry (and expensive!) devices like the iPhone would be, if they were designed with 7400 chips? If it would even be possible (which I seriously doubt), the PCBs stuffed-full of TTL logic would easily cover a football field, would require a 1000A power supply, and would cost $100,000 (or more)!!!

For you to even mention the repairability of stone knives and bearskins designs (no offense meant to Mssrs. Wozniak and company) like the first few Apple computers in the same breath as state of the art, massively-integrated product designs like the iPhone X strongly suggests that you wasted your money on that EE degree; because you certainly haven’t been keeping up with technology, even at a lay,an’s level.

Douglas McIntosh -

Yes, serviceability has definitely lost ground to compact design over the years. There are trade offs everywhere and either we carry around a brick with a removable back panel for component repair/replacement access, or have the smartphone design we do today where it's practically an extension of our body. I'm for the latter.

this looks like a science fiction movie, very big WOW

Be nice if the person breaking down the phone, or at least the one who writes up the Teardown, had some engineering training, some of the text above was completely unintelligible, unscientific and used wrong terminology in descriptions. Apart from that, though, great! LOL

vkd - 답글

And you’re perfect in everything that you do right? If you’re so smart you should have filtered through all type O’s and kept your rude post to yourself, JACKASS!!

Have you tried swapping parts from one phone to the other?

Tony Tone - 답글

The next thing to go is the nano sim tray for sure it's so large compared to the logic board.

Kailen Bittner - 답글

Apple’s almost definitely going to replace it with an eSIM in the next model. I sure hope so. https://www.blog.google/products/project...

Liam Powell -

Can you show us the OLED (Super Retina) display which Apple says supposedly folds in under itself?

jk379b - 답글

Could we please see more angles of the “sandwich” board before it was separated?

makenb - 답글

What about the screen essentially folding backwards on top of itself? I was wondering about that in a tear down like this. Here’s what I’m referring to: https://boygeniusreport.files.wordpress....

Kyle Wiens -

Is the gold plated part in step 12 a sim card reader? If so we definitely need esim

K Sec - 답글

this iPhone can work with one side of the logic board desoldered . you have to use it however as an iPod or iPad without wifi and bloetooth.

Efemann Computer - 답글

without harddriver either!!!

imnotar -

Could you check readings on that vias? (just some of them) and confirm whether they are grounded, empty or data, power lines?

bart6665 - 답글

Seems like Apple is designing a few more chips now.

T Hui - 답글

Maybe I missed it, but did we find out what the chip next to the speaker is? It was called out with a green box on the X-Ray in the 3rd step. I don’t think i saw the explanation.

gregkramer - 답글

I believe you’re talking about the chip in Step 20!

Dom Santangelo -

Just a guess, but the “Unidentified sensor bracket” in Step 21 could be related to Apple’s new leather folio case which wakes the phone upon opening and sleeps upon closing.

Antoine V - 답글

I’m sure the IR proximity is what does that

Dan -

It’s unlikely to be the proximity sensor doing this, as then it would work with third party cases as well, not just Apple’s and would do something similar when just covering or uncovering the screen.

Justin Clifford -

In the iPhone X promo video from Apple, we can see the OLED screen is curved under itself, which I’ve read is to ensure a consistent light all the way to the edges of the phone.

_

I’ve looked above a few times at the various steps but don’t seem to find any reference to details on the OLED screen, which you’d imagine is a very important part of any smartphone.

_

iFixit, can you please add a 24th step that goes into detail on this? I can see from a couple of comments above that I’m not the only person wanting to know.

_

Thank you for your incredible work!

Alex - 답글

Any chance you can show us the folded OLED screen? Isn’t this an integral part of the phone? Why did you leave it out?

Alex - 답글

Any idea who they are using for the Qi charging IC?

Robert McCormick - 답글

Apple made there own coil. It has the apple insignia on it

Are you able to put the phone back together and have it still be functional, or does this tear-down destroy the phone?

Will you be doing an in-depth tear down of the display itself? I’m super curious how Apple actually put this display together, especially after that outstanding product overview video.

BunkerS - 답글

Hi, I know that the iPhone X supports the auto sleep/wake function, as on iPads, using wallet covers like the original Apple Folio one, so I think there should be magnets inside the phone, is that true? If yes where they are? I saw tons of wallet covers on eBay that are sold as "magnetic" but they don't say if they support the auto sleep/wake function, anybody has tried one of these? Thanks

Could I replace the Entire Face ID Package, including the camera? Or is it paired to the Logic Board?

Matt H - 답글

So, is look like the Camera bump is very strong and durable since is welded to the body frame + glued to the glass. Right?

Time Line - 답글

How durable do you think the Camera bump welded to the Metal Frame + glued to the Glass (Glass glued to Metal frame)???

Time Line - 답글

Fantastic teardown guys!! I am curious about the stainless steel ring around the frame. It does appear that it’s composed of 4 distinct pieces due to the seams between.

Can you guys comment on how they’re connected to each other as well as the backplane?

It does make me wonder on the Space Grey version - are the 4 pieces PVD coated before they’re joined or after?

Steven Fischer - 답글

Any chance you guys will do a teardown of the display like you did with the iPhone 6s? I’m genuinely curious how on earth they made this gorgeous display!

I work for a phone company and we are getting these phones returned by same group of people, they take the phone out then 24 hours they return it, the boxes are open but the phones are still in the plastic seals, it there anything that can be done to these phones they look as good as new but my gut is saying something has been done with the phones.

James edward - 답글

Hi iFixit team,

At step 21 , there’s a rubber / silicone casing around the camera flash , which (I suppose) helps with water / dust isolation. I’m missing mine (repair shop probably “forgot” to put it back in). Any idea where I could get one?

Thanks a lot!

Could anyone unfold the logic board or is it really complex?

Getting it apart is very straightforward if you have a good hot air station. (There are numerous how-to videos on YouTube at this point.) Putting it back together in good working order is significantly tougher, but do-able.
